German actor Eric Braeden made it clear in a video that he has cancer and is currently undergoing immunotherapy.
The 82-year-old took part in a Facebook Live session toward the end of last week and revealed that while recovering from knee replacement surgery, he had experienced prostate issues.
He was subsequently given a diagnosis by a physician after high-grade cancer cells near his bladder were found.
I’m sorry to be so honest, but I think this might be useful for some older guys who may or may not listen to this, the actor said.
Braeden, who won an Emmy for portraying Victor Newman on the venerable CBS soap series The Young and the Restless, had prostate problems prior to receiving UroLift therapy.
He underwent surgery to remove the cancer cells once the cancer cells were found, and then he started a six-week immunotherapy regimen.
The 82-year-old was honest about his health with his supporters and urged with them to support loved ones going through a similar experience.
Braeden said, “I’ve learned to listen to my body more and not go all out.”
I have been feeling a little under the weather if you’ve noticed, but I’ll lick this. This moron won’t be able to capture me; I will. I’ll soon be performing at my peak.
The actor stated, “So that’s where I am right now. “I like to perform. I try to please everyone. You are a great help. Be there for a family member anytime they go through this. It could work out. Thanks to the remarkable advancements in contemporary cancer treatments, you can survive cancer.
Braeden is looking forward to returning to The Young and the Restless, where he has played the same part on a regular basis since 1980.
He said, “I’m still glad I can go to work.”
It gives me vertigo. I like to act. I hope I can make people laugh. And sure, I do value your assistance. It is important.
Let’s all hope for the best for Eric Braeden in the future. I look forward to the day when all cases of cancer have been cured.
